Starlink getting closer to achieve global internet coverage; has over 500k pre-orders today | BEAMSTART News

Elon Musk's SpaceX wants to bring internet to every person in the world.

The company's satellite internet service, also known as Starlink, now has over "half a million" pre-orders to date, which include advance deposits for the hardware.

Key Highlights

  • Starlink is still in its early "beta" stages, with the company gradually rolling out the service to more locations.
  • Despite being in "beta", over 500,000 people have pre-ordered the company's satellite internet service
  • Pre-orders include advance deposits on the hardware too. 
  • SpaceX has also launched 60 more Starlink satellites into space yesterday, commemorating "Star Wars Day" (May 4th).

Why it matters

  • SpaceX's Starlink service has the potential to disrupt traditional internet providers due to its vast reach across the globe, at potentially lower prices.
  • Low-orbit satellites allow people to receive fast internet speeds with low latency (ping), and capable of reaching even the most remote areas in the world.
  • The goal is to achieve near-global coverage by the end of 2021.
